Tensor based integration of the electroencephalogram and functional magnetic resonance imaging in the study of cognitive processes and disorders. KU Leuven
For this purpose, new tensor based algorithms will be developed and validated. The integrated results offer simultaneously spatial as well
as temporal information about complex cognitive processes, which is a
completely new concept in the study of normal perceptual-cognitive
processes, the ...
This PhD project deals with two topics set within the broader context of visual and cognitive neuroscience. First of all, we investigate whether certain properties of the primate visual system might be found in rats. The second topic deals with how representations of visual input are not fixed but are influenced by recent sensory input or even cognitive processes. In a first set of studies in rats, we investigate whether and to what extent ...

Unravelling the puzzle of back pain chronicity: An integrative perspective on disturbed sensorimotor control and maladaptive cognitive processes Ghent University
According to a large European survey back problems are the most common cause of chronic pain [1 ]. After an
acute episode of low back pain (LBP), 60-80% of patients experience recurrence or persistence of this condition
. Recurrent and chronic LBP form a major health care problem, strongly interfering with functional behavior
(disability) and quality of life, and causing important socioeconomic costs . Identifying ...
Understanding cognitive vulnerability for depression: A network analysis of the role of cognitive control in emotion regulation processes Ghent University
Prevention of recurrence of depression is an important societal challenge. There is need for
fundamental research focusing on mechanisms underlying depression vulnerability. Recent studies
show that cognitive control training (CCT) procedures hold potential in improving emotion
regulation (ER) in at-risk and patient samples, providing evidence for the causal involvement of
cognitive control in depression vulnerability. ...
Cognitive, emotional, and motivational processes in relation to depressive symptoms Ghent University
Simultaneous influence of emotion and motivation on cognitive processing hasnU+2019t been investigated in relation do depressive symptoms. This project is aimed to explore these influences in order to provide a better understanding of depression-linked cognitive biases and deficits. The project is also aimed to develop novel cognitive trainings in order to reduce biases and deficits and thus attenuate depressive symptoms.
Depression in early adolescence: the relationship between emotion and cognitive control processes Ghent University
In this study we suggest that executive control deficits could be an important underlying mechanism of the difficulties in information processing and the perturbed emotion regulation that characterizes MDD. Therefore it is the central goal of the current project to investigate cognitive processing of emotional material in depressed adolescents using different experimental paradigms targeting inhibition, updating, attentional control and ...
